The home stretch continues - welcome to the twelfth day of the trivia contest! I have 30 questions made up, from which two will be asked each weekday. For each question, the first person to post the correct answer gets a point.
We are still taking signups. Why are we taking signups? Well, even if it's going to be a challenge to win slots one and two, there is still an open battle for third and you will easily make your $5 back if you get that spot. Even if you never get a question right, you still get to pick a number of cards from the prize lot and there must be something in there of amusement value.
So if you know an answer and/or feel you'd like to have some prizes, please take a minute to donate $2.50 to each of the links below. I've got way more prizes than people, so come snag something. It's for a good cause:
There are still prizes that I've added to the lot but haven't posted yet - we'll have a new thread for prize picking when we're finished. The odds of getting something you like are pretty solid, and I'm not sure yet just how many picks people will get, but it will be multiple. Again, you'll get your $5 out of it.
Please also remember to send an email to me (1967ers at gmail dot com) and include your mailing address and your PPP id just so I can mail things out correctly when all is said and done.
I wish I had a nice Leaf-era Tim Horton to put in the pile, but I don't. I do have his one and only Rangers card, though, so it'll have to do. Tim was the Rangers when Vic Hadfield threw Bernie Parent's mask into the stands during the 1971 playoffs. I can't recall whether he was on the ice. Park was, since he was grappling with a young Darryl Sittler, and I want to say the other defenseman was Rolfe, but I'm not sure (I suppose I could look it up.) Either way, it was not his fault as Tim never did anything that wasn't awesome.
The Wayne Carleton is notable particularly for the cartoon on the back, which remains one of my favourites. I'm sure a lot of people wanted to make this gesture to Punch. I don't believe for a second that Carleton actually did, though. Wayne would wind up with the Bruins just in time to win a Stanley Cup. They rewarded him for his efforts by sending him to the Seals.
23. Who was the first Conn Smythe winner to play for a team that lost the Stanley Cup?
24. What goalie gave up the 500th career goal of three different players?
